    James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom

  • “Peter Carlson is one of America’s greatest storytellers, and this is his best story yet. Funny, thrilling, tragic, and impossible to put down, . . . A beautifully written, wondrous book.”

    David Finkel, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Good Soldiers
